Yasmeen Ismail Workshop

The Children’s Bookshow allocates four free workshops for schools who attend a related theatre performance.

This workshop will be a fun, hands-on creative experience for the children participating. Yasmeen will introduce herself, and start by reading a story. Then all the children will use paper, pens, glue and glitter to make their own favourite picnic foods which will be shared with the whole class at the end of the session on a big picnic blanket!

Suitable for:
Years 1 and 2

The children got their books today - they were so excited, we put in the book plates that you gave us, the children even took the books outside during playtime today to share the poems with their friends!!
